According to the BBC, Celtic have rejected a significant offer for star striker Moussa Dembele from French side Lyon, which sent Bhoys fans on Twitter wild with excitement.
The 22-year-old has struggled with a thigh injury so far this season but has scored three goals in the six appearances that he has managed for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
A former France U21 international, Dembele has netted 51 times in just 94 games for the Hoops following his move north of the border from Fulham during the summer of 2016, where he had been since coming through the youth system of French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
The transfer deadline for French clubs is at midnight on August 31 though so it remains to be seen whether Lyon will come back with an improved offer.
Celtic fans on Twitter were absolutely ecstatic with the news that their talented front man, who is valued at £6.3m by Transfermarkt, looked set to be staying at Parkhead for the near future at least. Check out the best tweets after Rodgers’ announcement below.
Maybe Dembele doesn't want to go back to France. Might fancy the Premiership.

Dembele has handled this well, no kick ups or fuss and I’ll tell you what if we hold on to him that’s a massive move from the board and a massive congratulations in order. Still want another 2-3 signings after mulumbo though #monthehoops
